What to Expect after Booking a Family Session
Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer! I absolutely love photographing families and capturing their connection with one another. I am so excited for our session together!
My photography style is posed and very natural and organic. I gravitate toward a hybrid of candid and posed sessions. During the family session: I do multiple breakdowns: family, mommy & me, and siblings/children only. I move fast making the session fun and hopefully stress free.
Before session, please prepare your entire family for our session, as everyone having a positive attitude is the most important component for a successful shoot.
This is ALL about your family, your genuine connection, and the love you have for each other. This should be an easy, non-stressful time for your family. I promise to make this easy-peasy for the whole family (including Dad!)
Please just sit back, enjoy the session, and let me take the lead!
I send a What to wear guide about a month before our session as well as a prep guide that has all of these detailed inside! And I am happy to give my thoughts on your wardrobe or to allow you to borrow from our women/children client closet.
Day of session:
I highly suggest not making other plans around our session time. Having a crazy, active day could make the kiddos extra tired. For the kids that still nap, do take naps that day. I also suggest eating before. It is super important to have kids with a happy, full belly. We don't want Hangry kids for photos.
I typically hold off ‘bribing’ your child until needed. I will do everything I can to engage little ones. Having something just in case is always a great option! (I generally have lollipops for the little for after the session, but if your child is younger, please bring a snack incase bribery is necessary.
Sneak peak sent to your email or posted on our social media 2-3 days before session. 7-14 days after selection, you will receive your soft proofed gallery to make your selection of images that come with packages with option to purchase additional images. Once images have been chosen, fully edited images will be emailed to you within 7-14 days. Generally whole process takes between 7-21 days from date of session to get digital images to you. Delay in choosing images does cause a delay in the return of images, so Pick quick! :)
